Fly News: Forbes Drops Their Hip Hop’s Five Wealthiest List

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 2.45.33 PM

We’re almost halfway into 2016 which means it’s time for Forbes to drop The Forbes Five list identifying Hip Hop’s wealthiest. This year’s cash kings are no stranger to the list with the exception of one newcomer who landed this year’s number five spot.

Drake came in at #5 with a net worth of $60 million from touring and his endorsements with Sprite, Nike, and Apple.

Coming in at #4 is a man who demands respeck, Birdman with $110 million down from $140 million the previous year, due in part to the turmoil surrounding Cash Money.

Rounding off the #3 spot is self proclaimed “I’m a business, man” himself Jay Z with $610 million, propelled by his Tidal streaming service which is now worth three times the $54 million purchase price.

Dr. Dre once again nabs the #2 spot with a net worth of $710 million thanks to his record setting sale of Beats by Dre, the biopic Straight Outta Compton, and a pretty impressive portfolio of California real estate.

Of course Money Making Mitch once again tops Hip Hop’s wealthiest list with $750 million. Diddy continues to prove his business savvy with stakes in Ciroc, his TV network Revolt, Sean John, and Aquahydrate.

These Hip Hop moguls know how to use their celebrity and business acumen to go straight to the bank! You can head over to Forbes.com to check out the full coverage on this year’s The Forbes Five List.

Missy Elliot: “I Don’t Think Diddy Understands The Magnitude of What He Did For Hip-Hop and R&B”, Missy Talks On Pharrell’s “OTHERtone” show via Beats 1 Radio

missy-beats-1-radio

Since hitting the music scene on Gina Thompson‘s 1996 hit-record “The Things You Do” as a solo artist, Virginia native Missy Elliot has carved a cornerstone in music that just can’t be touch, nor fulfilled by anyone; as there is only one Missy Elliot.

Elliot recently paid a visit to Pharrell‘s OTHERtone show on Beats 1 Radio as she discussed her time in the music industry and how Diddy aka Puff Daddy had a big impact on her career, and is responsible for meshing Hip-Hop and R&B together — making it ok to bring the streets to soul.

Just when Missy was about to give up on being an “artist” it was Puff that pushed her into elevating her potential of being a star. History was made when Missy made an appearance on Gina’s record that catapulted her into superstardom.

I don’t even think Puff knows what he did for Hip-Hop. Because he intertwined Hip-Hop and R&B and he made it so that people weren’t intimidated. Even if you had a “Biggie” who was giving street lyrics and coming from a world that they may not know of that’s just straight hood; Puffy found those like 112 that made it felt good. Biggie was still real himself but the music was there. I don’t think her understood the magnitude of that he did.

In the video, you find Montana planted in a wooden rocking within an empty room, reflecting on how far he’s come, working his way from the bottom to the top — but yet, still climbing and learning from his mistakes.

From past relationships, coming into a lump sum of money, and even meeting Diddy for the first time, French makes it known that he appreciates the growth and will never forget where he came from.
